Israel Closes Karam Abu Salem Crossing in Gaza

RAFAH, April 8, 2013 (WAFA) – Israeli authorities closed Monday Karam Abu Salem Crossing, Gaza’s sole commercial crossing located southeast of Rafah, said an official.

Head of coordinating committee in charge of entry of goods in Gaza Raed fatooh told WAFA “Israel informed us that the crossing will be closed today under flimsy pretexts.”

The crossing will be closed to the movement of goods, aid, and fuel entering Gaza.

To be noted, Karam Abu Salem is the only commercial crossing in Gaza, through which goods, humanitarian aids and fuel are entered to the people of the Gaza Strip.
